Bagless Vacuum Cleaners
May be Right For You if . . .
If you are a forgetful person, no time to clean up the bags after vacuuming, then maybe the bagless vacuum cleaner is just right for you.
No messy bags to clean. It is convenient for people who forget to empty the bags. If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, bagless vacuum cleaners can do the job without the dirt scattered around you as you move the vacuum along.
Bagged upright vacuum cleaners generally do not perform well on bare floors since the air movement created by the revolving brush scatters the dirt as it moves towards it.
The on/off brushrolls of bagless vacuum cleaners clean bare floors easily while the no-tip design in some stabilizes the vacuum for safe above-the-floor cleaning.
Upright bagless vacuum cleaners can be lightweight and easy to handle. So women, teenagers, female maids and harried men can relate to this.
Pros and Cons
Bagless vacuum cleaners provide vigorous and powerful suction. Others come with attachments for cleaning your furniture, drapes and stairs.
They have a clear, plastic container which captures the dirt and dust. Once the dirt meets the fill line, its time to empty the cup.
This must be regularly emptied in an outdoor trashcan and never empty inside our house. When emptying inside you are exposed to all the allergens that come with the particles.
Emptying the bagless vacuums can be a problem to people with allergies. In order to keep dirt from being sucked into the motor, these engines have several filters which have to be cleaned every now and then or replaced if needed.
Normally, bagless vacuum cleaners have two or more filters, the main which is the pre-motor filter and the other is the exhaust filter.
Contrary to belief, the replacement of filters in the bagless vacs is more costly than one year’s supply of disposable bags.
Whatever the mechanical devices one is using, there is bound to be maintenance cost. Filters used and washed will undergo wear and tear and have to be replaced. And so do rubber gaskets and seals around the container to keep it from leaking or replaced if it necessitates.
But bagless vacs are easy to use. They are light so handling is never difficult. They look mod and are more convenient than models that need you to change the bag.
The good thing going for manually emptying cups is the fat that you might have accidentally vacuumed up something that you want to get back. It can be removed without difficulty.
Sometimes emptying can be messy but it all depends on your vacuum cleaner. The maintenance requirements are both the same for bagless and bagged vacs except for the changing of the bag.
Whenever one thinks of buying a vacuum cleaner, the choice is whether it is going to be bagless or bagged.
What is the right bagless vacuum cleaner to choose, the features and their availability in case of replacement and perhaps the most important of them all, which brand is the most reliable?
Furthermore, what is the best way to use vacuum cleaners on stairs and wall-to-wall carpeting?
When you have bought one, you ask again how do I maintain a new vacuum cleaner because proper maintenance helps in making the tool lasts longer and perform better.
Regarding the amps, do bagless vacuum cleaner amps really determine the power of a vacuum cleaner? How about telling how powerful a vacuum cleaner is?
Are all vacuum cleaner bags created equally? All these and more are actually sensible questions that every human being should know about vacuum cleaners.
Don’t follow the slogans of impulsive buyers like buy rush and regret later. Never rush into anything, asking questions would greatly help. Find the facts about vacuuming your home. Don’t be mislead by reviews and publications, know what is behind them. Whatever reflects the reality of your home is enough reason to ask many questions.
